Easy Vegan Cauliflower Alfredo

alfredo

 

    It’s been a while since I posted a new recipe so I thought TODAY was as good a time as any! I’ve been really staying busy with my coaching business and I’ve been working on a couple of other projects as well. (Stay tuned!) Last week I had a free “Vegan Hacks” event on Facebook where I shared my favorite ways of staying vegan without feeling deprived! I meant to share my Vegan Alfredo recipe on the last day but I ran out of cashews and had no photo to share!! SO here we have it!! I hope you enjoy this cauliflower & cashew based Alfredo sauce! This recipe is vegan, gluten free, soy free,  processed sugar free, and free from preservatives and additives! 

 

EASY Vegan Alfredo Sauce

Ingredients:

1 head of cauliflower

1/4 cup Raw Unsalted Cashews

5-6 garlic cloves (depending on size)

1TBLS olive oil

Broth (enough to mostly cover cauliflower in pan. 1.5-2 cups works for me. Water will work as well.)

Juice from half a lemon

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp onion power

1 tsp sea salt

pepper to taste

1 package of your favorite gluten free pasta

 

(For this recipe I also added some sautéed mushrooms and green peppers! Totally optional!)

 

 

Instructions:

  1. Break apart cauliflower. Add to pan with cashews, garlic cloves, and broth.
  2. Heat to boiling. Cook for 10-15 mins or until cauliflower is soft. (To keep more of the nutrients in the cashews you can presoak them for at least 2 hours prior, and exclude them from the boil.)
  3. Prepare pasta by package directions.
  4. Remove cauliflower boil from heat. Add to blender or food processor.
  5. Add remaining sauce ingredients and blend well until smooth.
  6. Top your pasta with your vegan Alfredo and enjoy! <2
